The last two TR's that I had completely ruined my hair. Both were liscio. Previous to that, they worked great, but I believe my hair texture has changed (increasing grey) and I need a gentler option. Have tried BKT, but not happy with it. It does not damage my hair, but doesn't make it as soft, shiny and smooth as TR.
I don't really care about getting my hair super straight, but want to remove frizz and make it shiny. My hair is naturally course and wiry. I do single process color every 5-6 weeks.
I know there is a method of TR called "Smooth control" and then I think I remember reading that there's another method that's even more gentle than that.
Experts -- please let me know what the different options are for TR (I think I still want to use Liscio or possibly Yuko). Is smooth control much less agressive than a regular TR. I don't think I could go through another hair disaster.
I know you will say make sure to go to an expert. The last person who did my TR was actually an instructor for the company (Liscio)!!! I think stylists look at the courseness of my hair and assume I need the strongest formula. I am hoping I can find somebody who understands my hair and can straighten it w/o damaging it.
